Subaru Ascent

New York Auto Show: Subaru Ascent Concept


Subaru Ascent Concept signals Subaru’s return to the seven-seat SUV segment

Subaru could be back in the SUV game if the Subaru Ascent Concept is anything to go by. New from the ground up, the Subaru Ascent will be built on the new Subaru Global Platform and will be powered by an all-new 2.4 litre four-cylinder turbo Boxer engine.

Subaru is promising accommodation for seven adults – rather than five adults and two children. Production will commence in 2018 at Subaru’s production facility in Lafayette, Indiana, USA and will only be sold in the United States.

Shame, because it’d probably do well in Australia.
